Compiling on the Sopine Cluster
#1
Hi,

i wanna use  a rockpro64 with gentoo. Now i thought about using a sopine cluster as a compile machine. I am concerned about the eMMC/SD storages.
I doubt they survive heavy usage very long. Has anyone experience with this?

Since there is a LAN output on the clusterboard itself i thought about adding an HDD with a switch. Is it possible to reduce the usage off the sd card this way?

I really wanna try this project but have no similar experience yet with similar things.

If anyone is interested i have here a short summery what i plan to do in detail.

Thank you

I wouldn't try that on SD or eMMC cards but using network I see no problem.

You could use a NAS that talks NFS and use that as storage or use node 1 with a ramdisk if your stuff isn't that big.
Didn't do any good testing because my board is connected to a 100Mbit switch but I will test node->node speed somewhere today.

Small update, I'm getting about 85MB/s on FreeBSD a.t.m. but there are still some link drop issues (you do not notice as much in traffic but are pretty damn annoying as console warning)..
